    Available at belgiuminabox right now. I couldn't pull the trigger on the price but there's a nice set that has 2x fou foune 2x mamouche and a cantillon glass for 140 Euro.

    That is crazy expensive. 35 euro a bottle, with a free glass? Wow

    I think that deal has been around for a while... and there's a reason for that.

    I've been eyeing the same package for awhile...recently dropped from €150. No wonder it's still available. Their normal prices are borderline nuts, but recent price hikes are fucking crazy and insulting.

    Beer planet has had it on and off for 28 euro, 1 bottle limit. Still steep, but not quite a bad

    ive never had fou foune or mamouche, so when my tax return comes in ill probably use it towards that. but thats the only time i could justify paying that much

    Yeah that's been up for a good 3 months at least. Also the Euro has risen back up a bit again, so it's not a terribly favorable exchange rate right now. I can't really blame them for setting such a high price, but they went a little too far with it...

    I've bought from them, you have to maximize your bottles (15) for one box to make shipping worth it. If you just buy that 4 bottle deal, of course, WAY too expensive.

    was able to get one from etre for about $38 a month ago. After shipping, but it was a decent sized order I split with a friend.

    Haven't they stopped shipping to the US? I used to order from them regularly, but now every time I go to check out, it says something like "Shipping not available to the country you have selected".

    Had a taste of Fou Foune at a recent beer release, it was very good, but not worth that much.
